Right in step with the Comic Con theme, DIY Steel will showcase the very popular Metal EarthⓇ kits and Project Genius puzzles. These are items we’ve brought in exclusively for the event, with products you can purchase on-the-spot. If you haven’t gotten your hands on these yet, this is going to be your chance to grab some. But, you’ll have to be quick, before they sell out.
Metal Earth Kits Showcased at Comic Con
Made from high quality steel sheets, Metal Earth kits offer DIYers the opportunity to create their own three-dimensional models with stunning detail. Easy to follow instructions that do not require extra materials enable creative types to assemble the models by bending the tabs through corresponding connection points. Whether you are purchasing for yourself or as a holiday gift, we will feature the Star Wars, Harry Potter, Guardians of the Galaxy, Dr. Who, Transformers and Batman kits at Comic Con. See a few examples in the photos: C3PO from Star Wars, Captain America’s Shield, Marvel’s Deadpool, and a selection of Harry Potter kits that will be available.
Project Genius Puzzles Showcased at Comic ConThen, for something different, we’re bringing you a selection of our Project GeniusⓇ brainteaser puzzles. These are not your ordinary puzzles. Project Genius prides itself on curating puzzles that inspire the senses and stimulate curiosity. Its Constantin puzzles feature beautiful designs as well as challenging solutions. And, its True Genius puzzle collection is low-difficulty, but just as fun as the harder puzzles. Both brands include metal puzzles for you to solve. Check out the image of the Double Trouble puzzle that is just one example of what we’ll have for you.
